Strangely enough I can't think of one "normal" thing I won't eat. I am the least picky person i know! Stinky cheese, shellfish, offal, etc. The only stuff I won't eat are things on like bizarre foods: bugs, eyeballs, horseys.

Making chopped liver and tongue tonight for the holiday.

I wish to thank all of those who have taken out the time to post their pet peeves on foods ...

I agree: NO kangaroo, no horses or donkies, no rabbits, no crickets etcetra ...

Siegal: what is OFAL ? I have seen this typed several times ... is this a colloquial USA expression or a food ?

Kind regards.
Margi.

Dawg - you stole my list!! Except for the sweet potatoes, I'd have to substitute game in there (venison, rabbit, duck, etc)

I'm also not a fan of thai food. I'll eat it if that's all there is but generally don't care for it.

Onions! Red, white, or brown. Even the sweet ones like Vadialia, Wala Wala or Maui. We have a mutual non-agression pact. I don't eat them, and they don't give me severe agita.

Green onions, or scallions, are okay and I don't have a problem with shallots either, just onions. I can add them to a recipe, but I have to either eat around them or sleep sitting up that night.

Cabbage - in any shape or form. Coleslaw? Gross!! Cabbage rolls? BARF!

Brussel sprouts - my dad loves 'em. I call them his "gas balls" because I think they smell like gas when they're cooking.

Liver - I'm not squeamish about it, just can't stand the taste.

Cheesecake - I honestly don't know how I can hate it. I love cream cheese!!

No clue what you are talking about....

They do have that unpleasant side effect too.

There are many things I haven't tried so the list could increase or remain as is.
Agreed except the offal.

Cooked trout are horrible tasting. Smoked trout is good and so is smoked salmon which is closely related to trout and a fish that lives in both salt and fresh water and I detest it cooked.
